Quick note! If you have two Switches, you can change your Lite to the "Primary" console to prevent it from having to check in constantly! Granted, this means your other Switch will have to check-in, but since you'll presumably be using it at home, it will likely always have a data connection minimizing the issue :)

@goldfingerhardcore I totally agree, I assume those people see it as a new "toy", something new on the market, new colors , wow wow:) but at the end it`s downgrading if you already have a normal NSW. I have money to buy an additional one, but kinda prefer to wait untill MAYBE a Pro version comes along. That would at least make sence)

I have an OG Switch and I find it perfectly portable already. People who have an OG Switch and want to have a Lite as a secondary switch must enjoy wasting money.

I don’t have a switch. I have $250 at the moment. I want to get the light because I like the smaller size and price. I also own a Xbox at home. But, I want the bigger screen and docking. But I’m mainly going to play it portably. I also want the tabletop as well. What should I do? I need help!!!

Hey, quick question: if you get two of these for two people, what would be your recommendation on deciding the primary console, if that is even necessary? Any ideas, comments, or suggestions? It'd be great if someone could help me out with this. Thank you, and have a nice day!

Hey its a digital pad this time. Seeing Nintendo holds the patent it makes so much more sense. I get that they wanted the joycons to be able to be used standalone but it always irked me. Less clicky buttons are welcome too since the vanilla ones wake my wife up. The vanilla is worthless in bed because it's big, heavy and smooth. Slips out of my hands all the time. It's also loose and flimsy, I imagine the Lite feels so much better what with the body being one solid piece. What I really hate though and ultimately makes me stay with Sony is how everyone else have asymmetrical analog sticks. What the actual fuck is up with that. Does Sony have patent on symmetrical or are Nintendo and Microsoft just dumb? Ow my wrists.

I’ve been debating which Switch I should get since the Lite released. I may just end up getting a Lite then trading it in later down the road for the Switch “Pro” or whatever newer version Nintendo will inevitably manufacture. The portability will be good for me while I’m at work since I work in an office and during night shifts

The d-pad doesn't work very well because it's still the four buttons from the original switch but with a d-pad cover. You can verify this in every video disassembling the console. This makes it worse because you lose a noticeable amount of diagonal sensitivity. PS Vita had and still has the best d-pad ever existed. I wish Nintendo would take notice.

Nintendo forgetting how to make a D pad pisses me off bad. I had to go buy a Hori joystick pad just to play Street Fighter. Using any Switch D pad renders a game unplayable due to errant inputs. Nintendo stuff has always been high quality, I just don't get how they allow broken controllers to keep coming to market.

I'm not sure why people complain about the original switch not have a real D pad. I think the D buttons work fine. And for me personally I hate when games make you use the D pad. its the worst. So for me it does not bother me. Cause I prefer to use the analog 100% of the time if allowed.

What is the matter with the 4 directional buttons? when the switch was first announced, I was completely on board shitting on them, but now that I have them, I have zero problems at all, and haven't since I got my console a few months after launch. They aren't as good as a good old fashioned nes-n64 dpad, but they are IMO better than the Pro-Controller (wouldn't take much), the xbone (Too clicky for me) the Ps4 (similar design but the buttons work better) and now, the switch lite dpad.

The Switch lite is much better. They need to redesign the OG switch to be this size. If I could have a Switch this size that I could also connect to my TV, that would be fucking awesome.

3:47 alright you’re taking it a little too far now. Full console games don’t run on this thing. They’re clearly heavily graphically reduced to achieve an even slightly good experience on the switch. Don’t give it too much credit

Question: Does the Nintendo switch lite controls drift like the Nintendo switch’s joy-cons? The drifting makes me so mad so I might get a Nintendo switch lite if it doesn’t drift.

The real question and selling point to ask: *How fluently can someone swap between the 2 systems if they had both a Switch Lite and the actual/normal Switch with the normal / real one staying docked?* Such a person basically getting to use the Lite as a 2nd controller as much as a 2nd system? Swapping between playing owned games were are on one then taking the liter one on the go as their portable? And for that again for something like Okami, to be what the Wii U failed to be..... (actually portable while using an optional 2 screens system) Otherwise........................... why bother with buying a 2nd less good Switch? such that someone has succeeded by now in getting a regular one from a store or online.

Look, I’m not saying this thing is bad, it’s a good concept, especially for those who would rather play in handheld mode, but I wish Nintendo would’ve made better joy cons that fix the drifting issues that do many people (including myself) have experienced
